Cho Sung Joon From Korea
Drawing in metal, The Korean tradition of Jogeum
The course focuses on Jogeum or sometimes called Joi-jil, a traditional Korean engraving-fabrication technique.
Jogeum is a process where a variety of chisels and a hammer are used to make a series of marks on sheet metal to create an image or a drawing.
CHO Sung Joon will introduce and demonstrate this technique along with other traditional Korean skills including the inlay (Ipsa) technique, as well as demonstrating distinctive techniques (using the hand-piece machine) that he has mastered in his practice.
Participants will learn how to make the specialist chisels for jogeum and produce a series of samples, learning how to use these skills in their own work.
The program also includes talks on Korean metal-craft and how traditional techniques are used in contemporary work.
